Free Music Weekend! Teengirl Fantasy - "End"
STREAM: "End" - http://soundcloud.com/teengirlfantasy/end/for/
In the fall of 2010, True Panther Sounds and Merok released Teengirl Fantasy's debut LP, 7AM. Titled after the, "confused, dreamy, half-awake, half-asleep state that one experiences after staying up all night partying," 7AM was critically praised for its creative use of samples and experimentation.
On their sophomore LP, Tracer, Teengirl Fantasy cuts through some of the haze of their earlier recordings to create their most compositionally sophisticated work yet. "It's more focused, far-reaching and it takes more risks." Unlike 7AM, Tracer is completely sample-free and features an array of vocalists including Panda Bear, Romanthony (of Daft Punk's "One More Time" fame), Laurel Halo, and newcomer Kelela. For the songs with vocalists, their approach is, "a wacked version of the pop format." The album is sonically maximal and symphonic, with heavily layered songs containing multiple elements. "The editing is more painstaking- there's more crafting to the songs," says the duo. Although Tracer touches on an array of genres such as techno, pop, R&B, and house, it simulates a cohesive journey.
Tracer will be released August 21 by True Panther Sounds in North America in conjunction with R&S in Asia, Australia and Europe.
